A good article by Jarrod Siket
highlighting the need for a good heterogenous multicore design to be
able to meet the need of embedded communications systems. I couldn't
agree more. Jarrod has a number of good suggestions as to which
engineering challenges need to be addressed. The article is quite
timely as I just finished a webinar with Kontron on Multicore and virtualization focussing on ATCA.
Jarrod also makes the statement that 'no other processor architecture is more widely adopted or better suited than x86'.
I'll certainly agree that x86 is widely adopted and that it has been
doing virtualization longer than the other architectures out there due
to it's IT roots.
